A huge crowd turned out for an Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Oregon Lodge and Oregon Fire Department on April 8th. In fact, the photo above represents less than a quarter of all the total participants!
There were four different age groups who gathered up over 4,500 eggs in 15 minutes. Parents and kids had a lot of fun and it was a great way to bring the community together and partner with their local first responders. The event was a huge success!

The Brethren of Oregon Masonic Lodge have been very busy as of late, donating three rescue “manikins” to area fire departments and presenting 10 Fire Suppression Tools to first responders in Oregon and surrounding communities. Their community involvement is very impressive – and they are proud partners with and supporters of the first responders in their area.
